Welcome to the web site of Bedworth Folk Club.
The Club, which has run almost continuously since 1972, meets every 2nd wednesday of the month (8pm start) in the Smercote Lounge at The Newdigate Club in Smorrall Lane, Bedworth (CV12 0JP), and also holds a second night most months on the 4th wednesday, except June - August (also 8pm start) at Bedworth Rugby Club. The club is quite unique in that there is no admission charge despite the fact that there are top rate guests at almost every meeting (we just pass the jug around so you can give as much or as little as you wish a minimum of the price of a pint (around about £3 - £5) is suggested – our aim is always for everyone, guests, audience and floor singers alike to have a really good time.Floor singers are always welcome but we get very busy so we recommend a call or email to reserve a spot, on the night it is very much first come first served – if there is space available.

Steve Hicks & Lynn Goulbourn
Having first met in 2007, Hicks and Goulbourn are now an established act on the folk and acoustic music scene in the UK. If you've been to one of their gigs you will have been struck by their easy manner on stage, an amazing array of genres, Lynn's pure vocals and of course Steve's breathtaking guitar playing, Steve is drawn to instrumental music and, as he calls, it strangely beautiful, weird and difficult stuff. In a recent interview somebody asked him who his favourite or most influential artists were and the list included Moondog, Dusan Bogdanovic
